New Ultra-Low Profile Test Points

June 9, 2006

Astoria, N.Y.-The latest innovation from Keystone Electronics Corp. is a selection of rugged, ultra-low profile Test Points for replacing wire-wrap posts and turret terminals.

Engineered for high density packaging on .062 and .093 thick PC boards, the parts assure firm gripping with J-Hooks, EZ-Hooks, grabbers, alligator clips, tips or probes. The design also serves to keep terminals perpendicular to the PCB so that relative position is maintained during, and permanently after, wave soldering.

The new entries are manufactured in both a compact style (part #5021) and a multi-purpose style (part #5020) and are made from .017 dia. Phosphor Bronze with Tin Plating. Both types mount on a single, .014 dia. PCB hole. Keystone also produces a full line of Color Coded thru-hole mount Test Points in miniature, compact and multi-purpose styles. Delivery is from stock for all test points through the company’s global distribution network. On-line ordering is also available.

A major manufacturer of interconnect components and electronic hardware, Keystone’s capabilities include stamping, machining and assembly services. Application engineering assistance for product modifications and special designs are also available. ISO-9001 certified and RoHS compliant, company headquarters are in the USA with offices in Canada, Europe, Australia and Asia.
